Public Art Commission
Thursday 9AM in City Council Chambers

City Staff is discouraging the Elk Statue that the Heritage Dells neighborhood wants for the roundabout at Heritage Road and Kimball.  They say the roundabout is too small, and vehicles would probably hit the artwork.

Proposed Hummingbird Statue

The Commission plans to meet with the artist chosen for the roundabout by King Soopers.  That piece will be a stylized hummingbird.  Details in the meeting packet.
